I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. I received my training at the Swedish Institute of Massage and interned at the P.H. Ling Clinic in New York City.
I have extensive training in anatomy, physiology, Swedish massage, medical massage, acupressure and pathology. I believe in continuously learning new methods of massage and incorporating them into my work in order to provide the highest level of treatment for my clients.
Runners experience various pains, aches and injuries associated with high mileage and frequent runs. In particular I, like many runners, suffered from IT Band problems and sore hips.
I had enjoyed relaxing, superficial massages at various fancy spas, but they were not helpful for my training injuries. Once I explained my conditions to Charles and requested special attention to my lower body; he knew exactly what areas to pinpoint. He gave me a deep therapeutic massage on each visit. I have trained for 2 more marathons since then and each time, Charles is ready and available to help me through those difficult months.
In addition to providing a deep massage, Charles takes the time to teach me stretching exercises and even researches ways to help me with my specific injuries. I learned that having a massage on a regular basis also helped. I believe that making massages a part of my regular training routine has minimized my injuries and regular pains. In addition to therapeutic advantages, it just feels good! Charles is a friendly and sincere therapist, who truly cares about making you feel your best.
I would recommend him to anyone, especially athletes, who need special attention."
